The perfect pool has arrived! The New American Swimming Pool provides 40 dazzling case studies of what's hot and what's not in swimming pool design today. Say goodbye to the kidney-shaped and rectangular pools with concrete borders that have dotted the suburban landscape over the past few decades. The New American Swimming Pool reveals what is fresh, new, and exciting in swimming pool design today. This fascinating guide demonstrates how today's swimming pool can be a dazzling visual focal point, or designed so it seems to be a natural part of the surrounding landscape. Each case study includes a dramatic one and one-half page full-color photograph showing the pool and its setting, as well as a portfolio of smaller color illustrations and easy-to-follow plans, siting details, and information on materials and construction methods. Every stunning layout in The New American Swimming Pool is ready to foster the dreams of architects, designers, and homeowners alike of diving right into the ultimate pool.“In The New American Swimming Pool, editor James Grayson Truelove carefully surveys 40 particularly striking forms—urban, suburban, oceanside and country—to isolate swimming pools' aesthetic and functional elements. Waterfalls, rock gardens, modernist geometries, dramatic illumination, tiling and terracing are all deployed. With its site plans, lists of materials and more than 300 color photos, the book will make a valuable reference for architects, landscape architects and homeowners.”—Publishers Weekly, April 30, 2001“...is an ideal arm-chair guide for those yearning for a high-end built-in model, even if your desire is merely a pipe dream.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, May 2001 An outstanding addition to the best-selling New American series Swimming pools and swimming pool design are hot topics Details 40 case studies of inspirational pool designs by some of America's leading architects and landscape architects
